As I was writing, I realized the kind of culture that calms me -- be it music, television, movies, whatever -- is the culture of addled minds and frayed souls. To see others crumble makes me feel like I can handle life after all.
I watched "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" Saturday night. So many aspects of the the relationship between Clementine and Joel moved me, but particularly it's their flaws that make me like them. The open way they start over at the end with their flaws pushed forward makes me so happy.
|And then there's this moment where Clementine shatters the "manic pixie dream girl" trope in two sentences.|
In other news, Katniss Everdeen is my new #2, after Buffy of course. She is amazing. Flaws are cool.
